    I am sorry if this is the wrong place to actually put this but im trying to do this :

    my website is http://www.337studios.com (redirect to http://www.damienbenoit.com)

    but I installed the blog at http://www.damienbenoit.com/blog/ so i can tweak it how I want to before I launch it. Now I dont want to mess things up by actually moving the blog files from /blog/ to the root so I want to set every folder (meaning even images/ videos/ whatever/) in my directories so it links straight to the blog. I was thinking at first having it show a splash page but screw that. Id rather have it go straight to it. What kinda code am I supposed to put in my index.html that will make it not even show that page and go straight to the blog/ instead? Thanks in advance. Love you guys for all the help so far!

    Put this in the <head> of your html document:

    <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; url=/blog/">

    Info about the "refresh" meta tag:

    But is there a way to do it so the first page doesn't even show up?

    Wee, if there is nothing in the index.html except the "refresh" meta tag, then the "page" will not "show up".

    A;ternatively, depending upon your host, you can use the .htaccess file to accomplish "seamless" redirects as described at:

    This is probably what you have in mind, and I think it is the better way to go.
